This is a Taiwanese market exclusive. Distilled and bottled by Bruichladdich, this Micro Provenance is a member of their experimental tiny runs of distillate. Matured for 10 years in Pedro Ximenez sherry casks, this is bottled at cask strength with no coloring or filtering. These are really fun releases to try, so let's dive in.
Sticky sweet stewed fruits, wine, fig, black currant, cassis. Cocoa, musty pipe tobacco. Rich and pungent toffee. Decadent overall.
Thich mouth feel. No heat. light brine, some lactic character. Nice oak structure. Then the wine storms in. Rich raisin bread, moist pipe tobacco, decadent toffee and syrupy sweetness. Complexity is impressive.
Long, rich and sweet. Oak is more present, light acrid smoke, syrupy sweetness of stewed fruits and toffee. Heat is in check. The sweet tone is very nice as an exit.
Really impressive bottling here. Very big fan, especially impressed so much is going on without something dominating the profile. Delicious.
